Instructions for taking malarone (atovaquone and proguanil)?

Daily. Malarone (atovaquone and proguanil) should be taken daily starting two days before traveling to a malarious area, continued while you are there and for seven more days after you leave the malarious area.
Additional. Take with food or milky beverage. While side effects are rare, the most common ones are abdominal pain and nausea. A bit of food in the stomach might help reduce this small risk. Avoid this malaria medicine if you have significant kidney disease, are pregnant, or breast feeding a baby under 11 pounds. Ok for kids too unless they also are under 11 pounds.
